Overall description of the stakeholder
Green Korea was founded in 1991 in collective efforts by Baedal environmental institute, Civil Group for Green Korea Recovery, and Green Party Establishment Preparation Committee. These organizations were united together and re-born as Baedal Green Korea. It was April 1996 when the organization was renamed as Green Korea.
Green Korea’s main activities are protecting the mother land, the coastal oceans, and DMZ from ruthless land development and safeguarding the animals and plants. We take nuclear phase out actions, energy transition and the energy independence movements, in order to stop the climate change and realize a nuclear free world.
